School salutes International learning

January 14, 2005

 Albany-- A school with decades of education under its belt celebrated an important ribbon cutting Friday.  International Studies Elementary Magnet School,  which used to be Mock Road Elementary,  dedicated their United Nations cafeteria Friday.

The International Magnet Program offers students exposure to other cultures with an immersion into foreign language. Several national, state and local leaders welcomed the opportunities afforded by the program.

 "Another opportunity for parents and students," said Principal Wanda Mallard. "Especially foreign languages."

Students performed the school motto, presented cultural art and artifacts, and even recited the pledge of allegiance in English and Spanish.
